Back in 2014, we unveiled the new plaques to the Stoneferry and Wilmington men of the Great War, previously only recognised on metal plates sunk into the earth around our war memorial, those being the ones that came from their own parish churches when they were demolished.
The Sutton men from the Second World War were never mentioned on our war memorial by name, only by a collective plaque, something that was always intended to be addressed - one day.
That one day finally arrived on November 11th this year, and with the help of local Sutton ward councillors, and the research by the team of volunteers at our Old School Museum, this old 70-year 'wrong' has now been put to rights.
These 14 men now have their names inscribed inside Sutton's War Memorial Garden in this splendid new memorial.
It was unveiled at a special service of dedication on November 11th, 2022, by the
High Sherrif of East Yorkshire, Jacky Bowes,
and Lord Mayor of Hull, Christine Randall.
